U Will Place upon tke School (fiou.nd.5. 

With these words, James H. Stout became, in 1890, the founder of a unique 
educational enterprise: The Stout Institute. In October of that year, Mr. Stout 
presented to the Board of Education of Menomonie, Wisconsin, the following 

"I will place upon the school grounds ... a building . . . furnished 
with all the equipment necessary for the instruction of classes of boys 
and girls in the subjects included in the first year of a course in 
manual training." 

The unanimous acceptance by the Board of Education of this proposition 
was to be of untold significance not only to the community of Menomonie 
but to the entire country. January 5, 1891, saw the beginnings of The Stout 
Institute: a two-story wooden building, built and fully equipped at an expense 
of $2400, to be used by the high school students for work in manual arts, 
domestic arts, and drawing. 

In 1893, the nation's growing demands for instructors in manual training 
warranted the erection of a new building. However, on February 2, 1897, dis- 
aster struck: the accumulations of years of effort were wiped out by fire. Im- 
mediately, the construction of new buildings was under way. Thereafter, 
gradually, the modest school of the early years, pictured in drawings through- 
out this book, grew into a million dollar state college dedicated to the prepar- 
ation of teachers of Home Economics and Industrial Education. 

We wish this yearbook to picture for its readers, — somewhat sketchily, we 
know, — the changes which have come during the fifty years since James H. 
Stout gave Menomonie a. manual training school. Our college, making its 
contributions even beyond national boundaries, has become the ever "length- 
ening shadow of a great man."

One of the great contributing factors to 
the growth of The Stout Institute was the 
appointment, in 1903, of Lorenzo Dow Harvey 
as superintendent of the Menomonie schools. 
A few years later Dr. Harvey relinquished 
his work as superintendent of the city schools 
to devote his time to the demands of the 
Stout Training Schools, later to be The Stout 

Following the death of President Harvey 
in June, 1922, Burton E. Nelson, Superintend- 
ent of Schools of Racine, Wisconsin, was 
appointed to the presidency of Stout. Mr. 

Nelson took active charge in April, 1923. 
During his administration, the two and three 
year courses have given way to the four 
year course; graduate work is offered in 
the summer sessions; two dormitories, an 
athletic field, a site for a field house, a new 
home management house have been added 
to the property of the college. The little 
school of 1891, the gift of James H. Stout 
to Menomonie, is a college which serves 
the nation. A generous, farseeing man and 
an efficient administrator began the work; 
it is being carried on by a kindly, great 
educator, Burton E. Nelson. 

Dean of Industrial Education 

In 1919, Clyde A. Bowman was made the 
first Dean of Industrial Education of our 
college. Dean Bowman also served as 
acting president of Stout in the interim be- 
tween the death of Dr. Harvey and the 
appointment of Mr. Nelson to the presidency. 

Mr. Bowman has had thirty-two years of 
teaching experience, all but ten of which 
have been spent as head of the Division of 
Industrial Education at Stout. During the 
first World War, he was granted leave from 
his position at Columbia University to serve 
in the Engineering Corps. Executive and 
writer, he is a recognized leader among 
teachers of industrial education.

Dean of Home Economics 

Daisy Kugel, the first director of the House- 
hold Arts Department— as home economics 
was known then— of The Stout Institute, 
served in this capacity from 1912 until her 
retirement early in 1927. Miss Ruth E. 
Michaels was chosen to succeed Miss Kugel. 
She had studied at Stout, at the University 
of Chicago, and at Columbia University; 
she had taught in colleges in Iowa, Texas, 
and Pennsylvania. Her wide and varied 
experience in the field of home economics 
education gave promise of the valuable con- 
tributions which Miss Michaels has made 
to the Division of Home Economics of the

Senator Stout's original two-room building 
provided for little, if any, specialization in 
either manual arts or home economics. 
However, the $1,500,000 college of 1942 al- 
lows its students to branch into one or more 
of many fields. 

Through controlled choice of curriculum 
studies the sophomore man is directed into 
the field in which he will soon specialize. 
Prepared for more advanced work, he will 
devote his time to shop, drawing, and de- 
sign courses during his second year of work. 

The sophomore women in home economics 
are yet directed in their course of study. 
Such subjects as food preparation, clothing 
construction, home and family life, consum- 
ers' information, and advanced nutrition 
serve as a foundation for the sophomore's 
concentrated study of the family and its 

Further work, too, is required of all soph- 
omores in the liberal arts and sciences. The 
completion of the sophomore year finds the 
student well equipped to proceed into the 
advanced work of his final two years at Stout.

The students in Senator Stout's unpreten- 
tious little school of 1891 came with one 
primary purpose in mind: to develop man- 
ual skills in industrial arts and domestic 
economy. Today, as yesterday, Stout's 
freshmen enroll in our college with the self- 
same aim: to acquire the technical skills 
involved in these two courses. 

A broad general foundation in the two 
fields of interest — industrial arts and home 
economics — in which the Stout students 
specialize is provided through the freshman 
curriculum. Men receive a wide range of 

basic instruction in many types of shop 
work, such as machine and hand wood- 
working, sheet metal, electrical work, free- 
hand and mechanical drawing, machine 
shop, and printing. Too, introductory courses 
in foods, nutrition, clothing, and art are of- 
fered to freshman women, emphasizing 
throughout the development of the individual. 

However, technical work at Stout is thor- 
oughly supplemented by liberal arts courses 
— English, social science, and others — so 
that the student may develop, not only man- 
ually, but intellectually and aesthetically as

The variety in the training afforded by the 
Division of Industrial Education leads grad- 
uates into industrial and technical teaching 
in the various phases of our defense pro- 
gram, as well as into teaching in elementary 
and secondary schools throughout the coun- 

At the time Stout was founded, manual 
training courses were taught to the grade 
and high school boys of Menomonie; but in 
1908, by organizing and broadening the 
work, the training of teachers in industrial 
arts was instituted. After Stout was taken 
over by the state of Wisconsin in 1911, the 
responsibilities of teacher training were ex- 

panded to include the preparation of voca- 
tional as well as elementary and high school 
shop teachers. In 1917, the four year course 
was introduced, and the Wisconsin legisla- 
ture authorized the giving of the degree of 
Bachelor of Science. The two and three 
year courses were abandoned in 1926 be- 
cause of the growing evidence that the 
preparation of industrial teachers required 
a full four years of work. Through a care- 
fully planned proportioning of work in tech- 
nical, educational, and academic sequences, 
a balanced four year curriculum meeting 
the requirements of industrial teachers was

"Though an angel should write, 
still 'tis devils must print." 

Since The Stout Training School first 
opened its doors in 1891, the trends in in- 
dustrial education have been such that the 
importance of drawing in connection with 
shop work has been realized more and more. 
The relation of drawing to the other indus- 
trial courses was seen by Mr. Stout when 
he was setting up plans for the school, but 
because of limitation in money and facilities 
as well as a small enrollment, but a single 
course in mechanical drawing was incor- 
porated into the curriculum. However, with 

the enlargement of facilities in 1897, more 
drawing was introduced; at present some 
fifteen courses are offered. 

Whereas drawing has been a part of Stout 
since the school's conception, its related art, 
printing, has been taught only since 1906. 
The future trend in graphic arts is to corre- 
late the printing and drawing courses, there- 
by facilitating the application of the princi- 
ples of layout and design, color theory, and 
bindery learned in one field of graphic arts 
to the other field.

General Metals 

The Industrial Education Building, com- 
pleted in 1897, contained two shops in the 
south wing, a machine shop and a forge 
shop. The machine shop has continued to 
operate as a machine shop, with many addi- 
tions to its equipment as well as many im- 
provements. The old forge shop, with its 
heavy emphasis on blacksmithing, formed 
the beginning of what is now the general 
metals shop. 

The development of the general metals 
shop began in the 1920's. The reorganiza- 
tion of the shop extended over several years, 
well into the 1930's. In its development to 
date, the shop represents opportunities for 
work with metalworking, machine tools, 
sheet metal, bench metal, oxy-acetylene 
welding, electric arc welding, forging, and 
heat treating. 

The present emergency has shown the 
vital importance of metalwork in our modern 
civilization. The plan of equipment, the 
organization, and the operation of the gen- 
eral metals shop produce a flexibility which 
makes it possible to keep the work up-to-

General Woodwork 

Woodworking courses, from the very be- 
ginning of The Stout Institute, have been 
included in the curriculum. The woodwork 
shops were located in the Industrial Educa- 
tion Building until the Trades Building was 
constructed in 1915. The mill room was 
located in what is now the engine room; 
the building superintendent's shop was 
formerly a woodworking shop. In 1915, the 
wood shops were moved to the Trades Build- 
ing. Then, in the period from 1929 to 1931, 
an industrial education committee study 
resulted in a general reorganization of the 
woodworking courses. The committee abol- 
ished the system of separate unit shops and 
instituted a general shop system. 

Thus, through the years, many changes 
have been made in the department, both in 
location and curriculum; a continued study 
of trends and requirements will bring 
changes in the future. The role of the indus- 
trial education man is to be always in 
advance of the current needs. Accordingly, 
the woodworking department is at present 
experimenting with plywood construction, 
uses of wood substitutes, and new types of 
glue. In the college shops, also, the high 
school boys of Menomonie are constructing 
airplane models to be used in the United 
States' defense program.

Electricity and General Mechanics 

During the summer of 1919, the college 
decided that students of secondary school 
level ought to be instructed in the principles 
of electricity. Accordingly, two rooms in 
the Industrial Education Building were 
equipped as an electrical laboratory and as 
a lecture room. The laboratory equipment, 
mounted on movable panels, was used for 
demonstrating the principles of wiring, light- 
ing, and power. Through the years since 
the course was instituted, the many develop- 
ments in the field of electricity have made 
the subject increasingly important. 

The introduction of a course in auto me- 
chanics, in 1918, is another illustration of 
Stout's meeting new trends in education. 
Equipment for this first class included three 
stationary gasoline engines, parts of a Model 
T Ford, and an inboard marine engine. 
Only a few years after it was opened, this 
shop proved so popular that it required the 
services of four teachers, and there were at 
times fifty or more cars in the shop to be 
serviced. During 1942 many co-eds have 
joined the men in this course. Thus, it again 
meets the needs of the day.

In 1891 the foundations for the Division of 
Home Economics at The Stout Institute were 
laid in that two-room building in which in- 
struction in manual training and domestic 
economy was first given to Menomonie 
children. The work of the school in this 
field has developed through the years until 
today The Stout Institute is sending its well- 
trained graduates into teaching, dietetics, 
and commercial positions. 

The curriculum in the Division of Home 
Economics has been developed with the idea 
that a student gains most from education 
through self-activity in the study of problems 

in relation to family and community living. 
For each of the four years, one particular 
area has been chosen as the basis for the 
unified courses offered. During the fresh- 
man year, the area of personal development 
is the center of interest; during the soph- 
omore year, family relationships; during the 
junior year, social-civic relations; and, dur- 
ing the senior year, professional relations. 
In these final two years many home eco- 
nomics students spend considerable time in 
student teaching, and in the study of general 
psychology, both of which prepare them to 
face the problems to be met in a teaching

Foods and Nutrition 

Louise Buchanan 

M. Winnona Cruise 

Food Study and Its Preparation and Die- 
tetics were the two courses offered the stu- 
dent of domestic economy in the early days 
of The Stout Institute. Then, as now, these 
courses were correlated with the work in 
other classes, such as biology, physiology, 
and chemistry. Basically, the objectives of 
this department have remained the same: 
the planning, preparation, and serving of 
nutritious food in an appetizing manner. In 
those early days when domestic economy 
consisted of only two years of work, skill 
in the preparation of food and correctness 
in serving it were stressed more, for not 
much was known about nutrition. However, 

for those times, the courses that were offered 
at Stout were very advanced. 

Since 1915, the laboratories of this depart- 
ment have been located on the third floor of 
the Home Economics building. Here, in their 
first and second years, students do basic 
work in nutrition and in food preparation. 
Then, in their third and fourth years, they 
may elect courses which meet their indi- 
vidual interests and needs. 

For the graduates of Stout who have a 
major in foods and nutrition, some of the 
professional fields open are hospital dietet- 
ics, institution management, commercial 
demonstration work, and teaching.

Family Life 

The department of family life at The Stout 
Institute was begun in 1907 when the prac- 
tical school for homemakers was organized. 
This two year course was planned to give 
young women who did not want to become 
teachers a thorough, practical, and cultural 
training for the organization and adminis- 
tration of their future homes. The practical 
courses offered included the study of food 
and its preparation, textiles, artistic decora- 
tion and furnishing of the house, household 
management, home nursing and emergen- 
cies, and the care of children. Students who 
attended this school lived in dormitories 
constructed on the cottage system. Thus 
each cottage was a home as well as a 
laboratory for training. 

Today at The Stout Institute every home 
economics student is required to take sev- 
eral family life courses. During the fresh- 
man year, when emphasis is placed on per- 
sonality development, the women study their 
personal problems. Sophomore courses, 
however, stress the importance of family 
life studies, as do many of the junior classes. 
For example, Home Management, a required 
family life course, provides the opportunity 
for study of the management of time, energy, 
money, and home equipment through the 
students' six weeks' residence in the home 
management house. Child Development 
provides actual experience in work with pre- 
school children. Thus, today at The Stout 
Institute every home economics student 
receives basic training for family life as well 
as training for the professional fields.

Art and Clothing 

Lillian Jeter 

Hazel Van Ness 

When Stout was in its infancy, Domestic 
Art and Interior Decoration and Artistic 
Home Furnishings were the titles given to 
the courses which included work in art and 
clothing. Students in domestic art began 
with plain sewing and advanced through 
dressmaking, millinery, art needlework, tex- 
tiles, and interior decoration. Today the art 
courses are correlated with the other home 
economics work, too. In the freshman year, 
students are taught the principles of art in 
their relation to the home and home furnish- 

ings. Advanced art work is offered in classes 
in creative . art, crafts, sketch, art history, 
and in various courses in design. 

In the first year, work in clothing is begun 
by studying clothing selection and construc- 
tion. In the second year, each student is 
required to take an advanced clothing 
course. Other work is elective, and may 
include courses in applied dress design, 
textiles, children's clothing, clothing eco- 
nomics, clothing problems, or history of

"All work given in English shall be made 
as practical as possible." In these words Mr. 
Stout expressed his desire regarding the 
classes in English in the Stout Training 
Schools. Practicality still characterizes the 
courses in English at Stout. Since the stu- 
dents attending our college are preparing 
to teach highly specialized and technical 
subjects, they seek in English courses the 
pleasure and the abilities derived from or- 
ganized reading and, even more, for the 
development of the ability to express their 
ideas adequately. 

"The course in English composition shall 
cover a minimum of ten weeks," was an- 
other direction given in the early Stout bulle- 
tins. Today, the requirement for all students 
is fourteen hours of English, eight hours in 

composition and six in literature. The re- 
quirement of fourteen hours is high, but it is 
Stout's recognition of a fact: that the suc- 
cessful teacher must read with intelligence 
and discrimination, and speak and write 
correctly. Many students also enter elective 
courses in drama, poetry, and fiction, thus 
completing a minor in English.

Social Science 

"Devise, wit; write, pen." 

"The purpose of the department of Social 
Science shall be to give the student the 
necessary background in order that he may- 
understand American political, social, and 
economic life as it exists today." These 
might have been the words of Senator Stout, 
had such a department existed when he 
built the school. However, it was not until 
after the college had become a state institu- 

"Here are live whyers." 

tion in 1903 that social science was adaed 
to the curriculum. 

Early history courses included American 
History, which traced American politics from 
1789 to its current development; Modem 
History, which revealed the historical back- 
ground of contemporary life; and Industrial 
History. Courses in economics, educational 
sociology, citizenship, the family and society, 
and child study and training were later 
added to the curriculum. 

In recent years, in courses on some 
aspects of the family and of social life, 
the students are seeking an under- 
standing of the complex conditions 
characteristic of today. They are turn- 
ing to courses which offer a study of 
family life, of social problems, — such 
as immigration, poverty and depend- 
ency, marriage, — and to a study of 
contemporary civilization.

Speech and Music 

Since the inauguration of Stout's initial curriculum, 
many additions have been made to the course of study. 
Among these was the inclusion of a speech course in 
the English department. Then, as now, the purpose 
of this course was three-fold: mechanical, interpretive, 
and constructive. Formerly, too, a class in speech 
correction was offered for those with speech handicaps. 
Students placed in this group were scheduled for a 
definite period of individual drill each week. Today, 
students are given individual attention, each student 
conferring with the instructor. Extemporaneous and 
impromptu speeches hold an important place in the 
speech courses. But to teach the student to speak 
well before any group is the primary aim of the courses 
in the speech department. 

Another addition to Stout's curriculum has been the 
music department, which began with an orchestra, a 
band, a men's glee club, and a male quartet, all of 
which were extra-curricular activities. From this foun- 
dation, credit courses, including classes in solfeggio, 
harmony, harmony analysis, theory, Gregorian mode, 
and conducting, have developed. In these courses the 
students receive instructions in techniques in ear train- 
ing, rhythm notation, diatonic and chromatic scales, 
chord instruction, and acoustics. Perhaps the best 
known work, however, of The Stout Institute music de- 
partment has been the development of its excellent 
choral groups.

Physical Education 

Because Senator Stout believed people should have 
healthy bodies as well as educated minds, he gave 
the Menomonie schools in 1901 a gymnasium and 
swimming pool. At that time every pupil from the 
second year of grammar school through high school 
received two hours of gymnasium instruction each 
week. In the evening free exercise classes were held 
for the townspeople, who enjoyed bowling, swimming, 
and gymnastics as well as the privilege of using the 
showers and baths. In the public schools, then in the 
Stout Training Schools, and finally in The Stout Insti- 
tute, both men and women have been required to take 
physical education and have been encouraged to par- 
ticipate in sports outside of classes. Besides the gym- 
nasium and swimming pool, Stout students now have 
the use of the Burton E. Nelson Athletic Field, which is 
located six blocks southeast of the main school build- 
ings, and Stout Lot, which is located across from the 
women's dormitories. 

Today at The Stout Institute all freshmen and soph- 
omores take physical education courses. In the spring 
and fall they may participate in outdoor activities such 
as tennis, field hockey, golf, archery, and kittenball. 
During the winter months they may take classes in 
swimming, badminton, volleyball, basketball, calis- 
thenics, and bowling. Thus, Mr. Stout's original desire 
to build the bodies as well as the minds of the students 
is being recognized today.

Science and Mathematics 

'Calculation as final as decapitation ..." 

Mathematics and science courses were 
early incorporated into the curriculum of 
Stout to serve as a necessary background in 
the many technical subjects offered. In the 
early years, very few women took the 
courses in mathematics, but both men and 
women registered in the courses in science. 

'Man, remember death." 

The years have brought changes; for in- 
stance, students may work for a minor in 
either field, and many are qualified to teach 
either science or mathematics. But the ideas 
of Mr. Stout and of President Harvey are the 
ideas of those who plan the courses today. 
An early bulletin read: "The work in the 
science department shall be pursued . . . 
with a view to its value in the study of food 
materials." Equally wise were the directions 
given for each specific course.

In 1914 an organization known as the 
Student Council was formed at The Stout 
Institute. Composed of seven men from the 
Manual Training Department, it was the 
first attempt made at student government. 
Fighting bravely for life, it lived two years, 
but then died of sheer neglect. 

In 1928 another attempt was made, — this 
time, successfully, — - at student government. 
The new organization, known as the Stout 
Student Association, promotes a spirit of 
school co-operation and secures for students 

a definite and responsible vote in school 
affairs. Every Stout student, upon enrolling, 
automatically becomes a member and re- 
ceives weekly Stoutonias, the Tower, and an 
activity ticket. This ticket entitles him to 
admission to all concerts by student musical 
organizations, to productions of the Manual 
Arts Players, to lyceum and assembly pro- 
grams, and to student dances. Four student 
executives, who are elected by the student 
body, represent the students before the ad- 
ministration. The success of homecoming and 
of all-school functions is their responsibility.

Phi Upsilon Omicron 

Membership in Phi Upsilon Omicron, a 
national Home Economics fraternity, is the 
goal of every ambitious Home Economics 
student. The local chapter was organized 
in 1933 to establish and strengthen bonds of 
friendship, and to promote the moral and 
intellectual development of its members, 
who are upperclass women selected on the 

basis of scholarship and professional and 
personal qualities. 

In addition to participating in a national 
consumer project, the organization maintains 
a petty loan fund for upperclass women and 
a library at the Home Management House, 
and circulates textiles and film strips among 
Home Economics teachers. 

Epsilon Pi Tau 

In 1928 the Industrial Education Forum 
became a chapter of the national organiza- 
tion. Today, Stout's chapter, known as 
Epsilon Pi Tau since 1933, is the second 
largest of its fraternity. Its members are 
upperclassmen chosen on the basis of scho- 
lastic and professional ability. 

This organization aids in the social, cul- 

tural, and professional development of its 
members, recognizes the place of skill in 
industrial arts, and fosters and circulates 
the results of research in the field of its 

Its many activities include an annual field 
trip and visits to schools and industrial estab- 

Eichelberger Scholarships 

In 1921, Mrs. Mary J. Eichelberger left to 
The Stout Institute a legacy of twenty thou- 
sand dollars, from which each year scholar- 
ships, totaling four hundred dollars, are 
awarded to four sophomores and four 
juniors. The winners are chosen by a 
special committee, appointed by President 
Nelson, who base their selections on the 
students' scholarship, personality, promise 

of success, social attitudes, and contributions 
to the college. 

The 1941 winners were Marjorie Brokken, 
Geraldine Sinz, Louis Schmidt, and Joseph 
Petryk, representing the junior class; 
Gretchen Voechting, Nona Lcmdt, Herbert 
Anderson, and Lawrence Schandl Borosage, 
representing the sophomore class.

Arts and Crafts Club 

In 1932, as a result of the disbanding of 
the De Molay Club, the Arts and Crafts Club 
was organized to give students an oppor- 
tunity to become familiar with all the crafts, 
and to do extra-curricular work in those 
crafts in which they were interested. The 
members of this club spend their leisure time 

on hobbies, putting into practice the ideals 
of industry, skill, and honor. 

In the past the club has sponsored the 
Model Airplane Club of Menomonie; in 1942, 
the club is building solid airplane models 
for the government. 

Home Economics Club 

Every home economics student is a mem- 
ber of the Home Economics Club, which is 
affiliated with the State and National Home 
Economics Associations. In 1924 it was or- 
ganized to develop professional spirit, to 
improve social and educational activities, to 
keep students in closer touch with important 
organizations in home economics, and to 

support the international home economics 
fellowship fund. Each year the club spon- 
sors a corridor dance, the Yule Kaffeelag, 
the home economics rally, and a farewell 
breakfast for senior women, besides sending 
delegates to the state and national conven- 
tions and arranging club programs for home 
economics students. 

Stout Typographical Society 

The Stout Typographical Society, which is 
affiliated with the National Printing Educa- 
tion Guild, was organized in 1926 to promote 
closer fellowship among the men majoring 
in printing, to stimulate the desire for addi- 
tional knowledge and related information in 
printing, and to analyze problems confront- 
ing teachers of printing. 

Membership in the Stout Typographical 
Society is divided into three degrees — ■ 
apprentice, journeyman, and master — ac- 
cording to the knowledge and experience 
gained by the individual in the field of print- 
ing. Entrance to each class is made through 
a special examination.

Manual Arts Players and Alpha Psi Omega 

Inspired by the Little Theatre movement, 
the Manual Arts Players was organized in 
1921 to promote an appreciation of all the 
arts. Today its members strive to develop 
a taste for the best dramatic literature, to 
attain a certain degree of acting ability, 
and to train for future activity by participa- 
tion in or directing amateur dramatics. Any 
student having fulfilled satisfactorily the 
requirements for points gained through act- 
ing and crew work may become a member 
upon the approval of a majority of the group. 
This year the players attended the Menom- 
onie High School play and a presentation 
of "Life With Father" in Eau Claire. 

In the spring of 1935 the petition of the 
Manual Arts Players of The Stout Institute 
for a charter grant was accepted by the 
national honorary dramatic society, Alpha 
Psi Omega. Membership in the local chap- 
ter, Zeta Beta Cast, is the aim of every 
Manual Arts Player. Members are admitted 
to the fraternity on the completion of speci- 
fied acting and crew requirements. Alpha 
Psi Omega aims to stimulate interest in dra- 
matics, to secure for the college the advan- 
tages provided by a national honorary fra- 
ternity, and to reward worthy students with 
election to membership.

Stout Orchestra and Band 

The first Stout Institute orchestra, organized 
by Mr. Paul Gregg of Menomonie, was com- 
posed of eighteen people of The Stout Insti- 
tute and of Menomonie High School. Its 
purpose was to give students an opportunity 
to develop their musical talents. Since 1934 
the orchestra has been divided into two 
groups, a String Ensemble, which has been 
a part of the Symphonic Singers, and the 
larger orchestra consisting of the strings and 
woodwinds and brasses drafted from the 
band personnel. Each year the orchestra 
participates in the Baccalaureate and Com- 
mencement programs; it also takes an 
important part in the annual Christmas 

The Stout Band, which was organized in 
1911 by Mr. Gregg, plays for all athletic 
events, including some of the off-campus 
games, especially the conference games. 
At various times the organization is broken 
down into smaller units consisting of a jazz 
band, a pep band, and a co-ed band. These 
smaller groups appear at some of the bas- 
ketball games and for student functions. 
Membership in the Stout Band, as well as 
in the orchestra, is open to all students who 
have had training and experience on musi- 
cal instruments.

The Stout Symphonic Singers 

Originally a girls' organization, The Stout 
Symphonic Singers was organized in the fall 
of 1937 by music director Harold Cooke. 
Later in that year this group of singers was 
selected to sing at the National Convention 
of Federated Music Clubs at Indianapolis, 
Indiana. The following year the forces of 

the men's and the women's music clubs 
were combined into the organization today 
known as The Stout Symphonic Singers. A 
memorable event in its history was the tour 
made in 1939 to Baltimore and Washington, 
D. C. Besides making an annual tour, the 
group gives several concerts throughout the 

Women's Glee Club 

The Women's Glee Club of The Stout Insti- 
tute was organized in 1917 by Miss Eda 
Gilkerson. Between the years 1923 and 
1925 it was known as the Sharps and Flats. 
With the organizing of the Stout Symphonic 
Singers, the Women's Glee Club became a 
medium through which training in the fun- 

damental principles of chorus singing might 
be learned and through which, therefore, 
possible future membership in the choir 
might be secured. Together with members 
of the other musical organizations, it partici- 
pates every year in the Christmas program 
and in other concerts given before the public. 

"S" Club 

Only those men who have earned their 
major "S" are eligible for membership in 
the "S" Club. This organization, which today 
is the leading athletic club in The Stout 
Institute, was organized during the home- 
coming of 1930. The objectives set up by 

the club at that time, and still recognized 
today, were to build and encourage better 
college spirit, to give recognition to letter- 
men of the college, and to provide a means 
by which Stout athletes could retain friend- 
ships they had made while in college.

Tower Staff 

The first edition of The Stout Institute 
yearbook was published in 1909 by an edi- 
torial staff of seniors. It bore this greeting: 
"May these pages be a pathway to green 
meadows of the past." Then, as now, it was 
intended to serve as a means through which 
students might recapture memories of the 

days spent at The Stout Institute. Not until 
1923 did this yearbook become known as 
the Tower. From the little bulletin of 1909 
the Tower has grown into the yearbook 
which is an annual publication of The 
Stout Institute. 

Stoutonia Staff 

The Stoutonia, weekly chronicle of school 
news and student activities, is edited and 
printed by students. A two-columned, six- 
inch-by-nine-inch paper, the first issue of the 
Stoutonia appeared March 17, 1915. In 1921, 
at the Annual Convention of the Wisconsin 

Intercollegiate Press Association, the Stou- 
tonia was granted membership. Now, as 
in 1915, the paper serves the student body 
as a bureau of information on current news 
and as a means through which alumni keep 
in touch with their alma mater. 

Photo Club 

The Photo Club was organized in 1937 
to give students interested in photography 
an opportunity to learn more about their 
hobby. During the first semester meetings, 
the members gave a series of reports and 
demonstrations on photographic techniques, 
such as taking pictures, and developing and 

printing photographs. Throughout the year 
the group concentrates on taking certain 
types of snapshots, as campus scenes and 
animal pictures. The excellent photographic 
facilities offered by the club and the school 
encourage students to participate in pho- 
tography as a hobby.

The Hyperian Society was organized in 
1923 as a literary and social service club. 
In carrying on the social work in past years, 
the society has "sponsored a small child," 
entertained needy children at Christmas 
parties, sent children to nursery school, and, 
recently, aided a needy family in the com- 
munity. Other activities of this organization 

include a Christmas card sale, an all-school 
dance and tea, participation in the Inter- 
society Ball, and monthly social meetings. 
To enjoy themselves socially, to do social 
work in the community, to support school 
activities, and to encourage high scholar- 
ship are the aims of the Hyperian Society 

Y. W. C. A. 

Being the oldest organization for women stu- 
dents at Stout and the oldest student club of its 
kind in the state of Wisconsin is the distinction 
of the Young Women's Christian Association. The 
need of an organization to lead in the social and 
religious life of women students was met by 
establishing the Y. W. C. A. in 1912. Many of 
its activities, however, are designed to serve the 
college and the community, as the campus sister 
movement, the annual all-school picnic, sunrise 
services, and help to needy families of Menom- 
onie. Most important, though, is the opportunity 
for religious expression and growth which the 
Y. W. C. A. provides for women students at The 
Stout Institute.

Pallas Athene 

The Pallas Athene Society is the young- 
est of the social groups on the campus, 
having been organized in 1934 in response 
to the need for a fourth social organization. 
The name of the society, Pallas Athene, has 
its origin in Greek mythology; it was the 
name of the goddess of wisdom, science, 
and art. The club's original purposes, still 
being carried out, were to promote good 

fellowship within the group, to promote both 
the social and the cultural growth of the 
individual, and to encourage high ideals of 
scholarship. As a part of its social activities, 
the society offers a scholarship to a deserv- 
ing sophomore woman, sponsors a May Day 
tea and an Easter gift sale. Too, the group 
actively participates in the Inter-society Ball 
and the intramural sports program.

Originally organized in 1912 as a wom- 
en's literary society, the Philomathean 
Society soon became a social group. It is 
the oldest of the four women's social organ- 
izations at Stout. In 1920, the society was 
reorganized and "love of learning," derived 
from the word "philomathean," became its 
motto. Annually, the society sponsors a 

Christmas sale of English toffee and hand- 
made gifts to raise money for the scholar- 
ship which the group gives to a deserving 
freshman woman. To intensify their own 
interest, as well as that of others, in good 
literature is still one of the aims of the 
Philomathean society. 

S. M. A. 

The S. M. A. Society is another of the 
social organizations for women students on 
the campus. Organized in 1922 to promote 
the appreciation of music and arts, the group 
occasionally attended art exhibits and con- 
certs. Today the society not only encourages 
high scholarship but also offers social and 

educational benefits to women of similar 
interests. The organization annually spon- 
sors a Leap Year Week in February, high- 
lighted by their all-school dance and tea. 
The S. M. A. Society maintains a student 
loan fund available to any woman student 
of high scholarship who needs financial aid. 

W. A. A. 

The Women's Athletic Association is inter- 
ested in the promotion of recreational activi- 
ties for all women students at Stout. Orig- 
inally called the Hikers' Club, it was reor- 
ganized into the W. A. A. in 1926 when the 
need for a club to promote women's athletics 
was realized. By means of a point system, 
its members can earn awards for their ath- 

letic ability. The group annually sponsors 
a women's intramural program, which in- 
cludes games of volleyball, basketball, bowl- 
ing, and badminton. The annual spring 
water carnival is the work of this organiza- 
tion. "Play for play's sake" aptly expresses 
the aim of the W. A. A.

J- an wood rjall 

Lynwood Hall was built by Mr. Walter 
Clark, who was prominent in the real estate 
business in Menomonie. It served as a 
women's dormitory for fifteen years. During 
ten of those years a dining room was oper- 
ated and students registered for room and 

During the World War period a cafeteria 
was opened in the Home Economics Build- 
ing. Soon the Lynwood Hall dining room 
was closed. Residence at Lynwood became 
less popular, and finally the owner proposed 
to use the building for some other purpose. 

The two deans at that time felt that the 
building was necessary to the housing of 

Stout students, and on their respresentation 
and plea, President Nelson, who was still 
new in the administration, in 1923, without 
legislative action, personally bought Lyn- 
wood Hall; and under the directorship of 
Mrs. Dow, the dormitory was redecorated 
and refurnished. The private control lasted 
for two and one-half years before the build- 
ing was taken over by the state without 
financial loss to the President or to the state. 

In 1930, Lynwood became a men's dor- 
mitory and was organized as a college club. 
Enlarged, remodeled, and improved in many 
respects, Lynwood Hall affords accommoda- 
tions such as few college fraternities offer. 


Taint et r/all and -fr* 


These two dormitories for women have, 
perhaps, the most interesting histories of any 
of the buildings on The Stout Institute cam- 
pus. Tainter Hall was originally the home 
of the Andrew Tainter family. Part of the 
present dining room was a conservatory; 
the other part was a billiard room, a popular 
recreation room for the young friends and 
members of the Tainter family. 

In 1906 this home was bought by The 
Stout Institute to be used as a women's 
dormitory. Two years later the stables, 
which were located near the Hall, were 
bought and rebuilt as another dormitory to 

accommodate sixty-five women. This build- 
ing, today called Tainter Annex, was called 
Barny Castle by the girls who made the 
Annex their college home. 

In 1915 part of the Annex was destroyed 
by fire. The dormitory was immediately 
rebuilt and modernized, and life in the build- 
ing resumed its normal pace. Then in 1916 
the women decided to elect house councils 
and to organize each dormitory as a school 
club. As organizations these two dormi- 
tories started social affairs which have be- 
come a part of the Stout tradition — the an- 
nual formal reception and open house, and 
the monthly birthday parties.

Junior Prom 

For thirty-three years the prom has been 
one of the highlights of the social season at 
Stout. The brief description accompanying 
the record of the prom of 1909 in the year- 
book of that year — "Oh! but it was a swell 
party" — holds true for the most recent as 
well as for the first Stout prom. In 1942, 

the junior prom, held on May ninth, was 
almost the traditional success. We say 
"almost," for even the excellent work of the 
committees could not compensate for the 
unavoidable absence of many of the college 

F. O. B. 

F. O. B. is the oldest of the two men's 
social organizations of The Stout Institute. 
F. O. B. has the singular distinction of being, 
perhaps, the only college men's organization 
in the country to be founded in a women's 
dormitory. F. O. B. was founded in the 
recreation room of Lynwood Hall in 1927, 

when Lynwood was still a residence for 
women students. The F. O. B. encourages 
not only social activities but student interest 
in the Stout athletic program. In May of 
each year since 1935, the F. O. B.'s have 
awarded a scholarship to the most accom- 
plished Stout athlete of the year. 

K. F. S. 

A small group of friendly Stout men met 
one night in 1931 to organize the K. F. S., 
a social organization for the industrial edu- 
cation students of The Stout Institute. In 
1932 the K. F. S. was officially recognized 
as a college organization and since then has 
grown with the school. This year the group 

initiated tours for the home economics 
students through the industrial education 
school. To aid the national defense pro- 
gram they accepted the responsibility of 
selling defense stamps at Stout. Now, as 
always, the K. F. S. offers social as well 
as educational opportunities to its members.

The crisp September air was punctuated 
by the repeated thuds of feet thumping the 
pigskin as forty-one candidates on trial for 
the starting positions on the football squad 
worked out. Although veteran material was 
scarce, when asked to comment on the pos- 
sibilities of his football team, Coach Johnson 
said, "We will do the best we can; that's 
all." It was this brief sentence which the 
squad turned to for their slogan of "Do Your 
Best"; and their best they did, indeed, for 
the result was a co-championship with the 
La Crosse team. 

As the season progressed, the Blue Devils 
ground out conference wins over Eau Claire, 
our homecoming foe, 39-0; River Falls, 21-6, 
and Superior 12-6. The only blot on an 
otherwise perfect conference schedule was 

the defeat at the hands of La Crosse with 
a 20-6 score. This record of three confer- 
ence wins and one defeat gave Stout a 
share of the title in the Northern State Teach- 
ers loop the first time in twenty-one years. 

At the recognition banquet given the 
champs at the end of the season by the "S" 
Club, the honorary captain, Ray Loer, was 
chosen. It was also announced that Rex 
Merriman and Ray Loer had been chosen 
as members of the all-conference team in 
the league. Credit can be heaped upon the 
coaching staff, composed of Head Coach 
Ray C. Johnson and his assistants, K. C. 
Wennerberg and John Richter, for the fine 
job they did in bringing the squad through 
in such a favorable way.

Climaxing an already successful athletic 
season, the Blue Devil hoopsters fought their 
way through a strong field and annexed 
the championship of the Northern State 
Teachers College conference. It was the 
first time Stout had won a championship in 
basketball in seventeen years; the last club 
to turn the trick was that of 1926. The re- 
ward for winning the coveted title was a 
trip to Kansas City, Missouri, to compete 
in the National Inter-Collegiate Tournament. 

After Coach Johnson's charges had beat- 
en Gustavus Adolphus and Bemidji and lost 
to Hamline in non-conference competition, 
the conference games for the first semester 
showed wins over River Falls, Eau Claire, 
and Superior State Teachers Colleges. La 
Crosse was the only team to defeat the Blue 
Devils in the first semester competition. 

The second semester found Coach John- 
son experimenting with his squad to find 
the most suitable combination. The records 
shows two non-conference defeats and one 

win, and three conference wins against one 
loss. This record, coupled with the first 
semester record, gave Stout six wins and 
two losses and a clear claim to the title. 

The finale of this season was an invita- 
tion to compete in the National Inter-Col- 
legiate Tournament; the team accepted and 
played two games in the tournament. Meet- 
ing a strong Texas Wesleyan team of Fort 
Worth, Texas, which had a string of forty- 
one consecutive wins, the Blue Devils upset 
the tall Texans 47-42. In the second contest 
the Blue Devils lost to Missouri Valley Cen- 
tral champs 49-33 and dropped from the 
meet. The showing made in the tournament 
was far above expectations and also marked 
the first time a Stout squad had competed 
in an event of this type. 

The season was complete when Coach 
Johnson announced the all-conference team 
on which we placed Harland Hesselman 
and William Peterson at center and guard 
respectively. Stout was king of northern 
sports for the season 1941-42.

-find So &lo±e± the &olleae Ueal 

of 1941-42, climaxed by the graduation of our seniors on the 
twenty-ninth of May. Unlike the graduates of the class of '41 
(opposite page), the senior class of 1942 faces a war-torn world— 
they face a nation and a world uprooted by seething conflicts. 

These Stout men and women have a job to do — a job they 
must and can do well — the job of using their technical knowl- 
edge and skills in producing material things, and their teach- 
ing ability in training others to use these products in ridding 
the world of the powers which are trying to rob us of the very 
fundamentals of our freedom. 

The senior class presented in the preceding pages is not 
complete. Many whose pictures should appear there (or do 
appear there) are already serving their country in the armed 
services, or in training centers such as Chanute Field, Navy Pier, 
or the Chicago Vocational School. Those seniors represented 
here — and juniors, sophomores, and freshmen as well — will 
contribute, too, their abilities to work vital to ultimate victory. 
Members of our faculty, with our graduates and former students, 
also are aiding in this great struggle. 

If Senator Stout could have foreseen the effects of that brief 
proclamation, "I will place upon the school grounds ..." he 
would have been justly proud of the men and women, educated 
in his school, now in the fore on American battlefronts.
